Adorno and Art: Aesthetic Theory Contra Critical Theory by J. Hellings

By J. Hellings

A finished, severe and obtainable account of Theodor W.

Qué cuenta como una vida: La pregunta por la libertad en Judith Butler (Teoría y crítica nº 21) (Spanish Edition)

«Para mí, desde un punto de vista filosófico, l. a. pregunta es: ¿qué significaría reconocer, aceptar, cierto tipo de permeabilidad, cierta manera en l. a. que somos afectados por otros a los que no conocemos o por los que no elegimos ser afectados?
